people trapped in our muddled policy. and this in colorado, a swing state, where both romney and obama have been courting the large hispanic vote. that wouldn't have happened if my guest on this week's broadcast had been moderating the debate, but their participation was rejected by the tiny group of insiders who set the rules. that's a shame because george ram mows and maria elena sorena are two of the most popular journalists. they work for the most important spanish language network in the country, univision. i met them for the first time earlier this week when they were in town to receive the emmy award for lifetime achievement from the national academy of television arts and sciences. here's part of the video presentation that introduced them to the emmy audience. >> they're two of the most well-recognized journalists in the united states. pioneers and advocates. for more than two decades maria and george have informed million of hispanics through the popular evening newscast. their brand of journalism is characterized not only by subjective and perspectives, but also by a high de

it new ad in four swing states criticizing president obama for being just terrible on gun rights. what has president obama done that's so terrible? what anti-gun laws has president obama passed? precisely none, zero. president obama's actual record on guns as president is that you can now carry guns on amtrak trains and national parks. and that's the guy who did not get the endorsement of the nra. this guy did. >> i don't line up 100% with the nra. >> the nra is not looking to honestly compare the two candidate's records on their one and only issue of gun rights. the nra just wants the republican. that's what they want. that's why they exist. they are a republican-interest group and describe them any other way is to play into their spin. the idea of how to sans their own interests is to get a republican elected to office. whatever you think about them in terms of its effectiveness, frankly, that stinks for people who really do care about gun policy because they have the worst supposed advocates ever. >>> the interview tonight responding to mitt romney's foreign policy speech, the
